Oslo, Norway – The father of suspect Anders Behring Brievik, have extended his sympathy over the family of those who were killed in two attacks in New York.
According to Jens Brievik, he also felt grief on the families of those who were killed after what his son have done.
He said that he wanted to do something but he doesn’t have the power to do it.
“I would like to say that I feel an incredible grief and despair over what has happened. I often think of how terrible it must be for those who are affected by this. I wish I could do something for them, but here I am, powerless to do anything,” Jens Brievik said.
Jens Brievik was also looking for answers why the suspect, who was his son, made the ghastly crime.
From his home in France, Mr. Brievik announced that his son should have killed himself rather than anyone else.
“In my darkest moments, I think that rather than killing all those people, he should have taken his own life,” he added.
He also believes that his son has a mental problem because nobody who’s thinking sensibly could ever do such a thing just like what his son has made on bombing the government building in Oslo and the youth camp massacre which killed 76 people.
“He must be. He must be,” Mr. Brievik said when he answered the question whether his son has a mental problem. “There is no other way to explain it. A normal person would never do such a thing.”
According to Mr. Brievik, he doesn’t have any plans on visiting his son, who is already in prison today and he will never communicate with the suspect anymore.
“No. I will never have more contact with him.”
